Just blatantly trying to rip me off, because they know that if they just add an inch, it will knock it up another $10 or something.
What length of items are you shipping? Parcel Post charges the same rate for any package up to 130 inches in length + girth, which is a huge advantage over UPS.
I ship 4x4 tubes that are 74 inches long for regular Parcel post rates all the time. You have to have a seriously-long package to get charged balloon rates.
